Indications have emerged of another planned nationwide strike by electricity workers in the country over the alleged unwillingness of the government to resolve issues of unpaid entitlements to former workers of the defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria PHCN.

It was gathered that some government agencies, including the anti-graft bodies, are allegedly harassing labor leaders in the sector over the agreements reached with the government during the privatization of the sector.

The issue of unpaid benefits was one of the reasons that led to the industrial action by the workers in the industry, under the aegis of the National Union of Electricity Employees NUEE, and Senior Staff Association of Electricity and Allied Companies SSAEC, two weeks ago which threw the nation into a blackout.

Sources disclosed that the government agencies including the Bureau of Public Enterprise BPE, which supervises the Federal Government privatization program are shying away from the payment of the benefits, among other pending entitlements.
